    Installing Applications on Ubuntu with Add/Remove

    The term "Add/Remove Programs" seems more appropriate to Windows than to Linux however, Ubuntu does offer this option (besides apt-get and synamptic) to locate and install software on your Dapper Drake machine.

    NOTE: You may want to review the tutorial: How to Install Macromedia Flash Player 7 for Firefox on Ubuntu and make sure you performed all of the steps in the Prerequisites section before proceeding here.

    Opening Add/Remove is like visiting a candy store but there are steps you can take to increase the number of options in the "candy jar". Follow along with these steps and see for yourself.

    Read the rest of the tutorial and see the screenshots Here.

      Interesting this should come up. I recently listened to a Podcast that mentioned that the more *utilities* and therefore code that is availible within an operating system results in more security flaws.

      True, Boyce. Usability vs. Security have been old adversaries. The most secure computer is unusable and the most usable computer is unsecure.

      Yes, that is exactly it. The more people want to do with their machine ultimately results in more holes....
